Perama boat sinks off Komodo

Posted by somtam2000 on 29/3/2011 at 21:13

Story this morning of a Perama ferry that sunk off the coast of Komodo overnight. I'm not up on all the details, but you can read reports from people who were on the boat here and here and here. It seems nobody drowned, but there are some very very wet people, lost bags (and perhaps some stolen gear). Perama (the boat operator) has apparently less than helpful, but it does sound like weather was terrible and that the captain was trying to escape into a sheltered bay, but failed. I'm not sure wh ...

3-4 weeks: Sulawesi/Flores?

Posted by amz155 on 2/3/2011 at 08:40

We are currently debating between either Malaysian Borneo or Sulawesi/Flores for a 3-4 week trip this September. It'll be our honeymoon but we are okaying with roughing it. We visited Java, Bali and Lombok last year so do not need to see those areas again yet. Our main goals are to see nature/wildlife (Borneo/Mulu Park vs. Kelimutu/Rinca/Komodo), culture (Iban longhouses vs. Tana Toraja) and beach bum/snorkel (Perhentians/Tioman vs. Bunaken?Togians? area around Lubuanbajo?) Does anyone have a ...

What is a cheap ticket to Indo? When should I buy a ticket?

Posted by hawaiirunner on 9/3/2011 at 04:18

Aloha, I am new to this forum and website. My boyfriend and I are planning a 3 week trip to Indonesia in August. We are hoping to leave around August 1st and be back around August 27th. I have been looking at tickets online and the cheapest I have found is about $1100 through China Southern. I am not for sure if I should go ahead and buy this ticket or wait to see if prices drop. Any suggestions? Is it too early to buy a ticket? Is this a good price? Will prices drop? The only problem with the ...

Hi all, planning to have a 2 1/2 weeks quick trip to W.Flores for some diving then the Gili's in early to mid June.

Pelni travel: a few questions.

Posted by ianintheworld on 11/3/2011 at 22:59

I would like to try travelling around Indon without flying, so this means Pelni. I have read some sad stories of ekomi class (or however, it is spelt), but have read that 1st class is fairly comfortable. I have looked at the prices, which are ok. Any thoughts on this? Also security for my stuff. I travel with 2 bags, but with a computer and of course my documents and cards. How safe would they be on a Pelni? If I had a first class cabin would they be ok? I sound like a bit of a wuss, but I am t ...

Nature as dry as Thailand/Laos?

Posted by freaktom on 1/3/2011 at 19:53

Hi guys, for 15 months weve been travelling trough Australia, New Zealand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and the north of Thailand. The dry season in SEA can be seen everywhere, its dry, hot, foggy during the day and the nature looks like autumn in europe. We saw many beautiful places but it seems that we are satisfied. Instead of spending too much time in the north of thailand (coz the waterfalls arent flowing, not interested in hiking here, ...) we were thinking of flying to sumatra or sulawesi. Doe ...

Jewelry Workshop Review: Studio Perak in Ubud, Bali

Posted by cisdeluca on 2/2/2011 at 18:57

At Studio Perak in Ubud, Bali, you can take a 3 hour silversmithing and jewelry making workshop. The studio provides each student with 5 grams of silver to craft a pendant or ring and the expertise of a great instructor named Nyoman. When I went last week, I was very pleased with the experience. Upon arrival, we were given the opportunity to browse their shop to choose a design to replicate from their pre-existing items. Instead of trying to design my own piece, I decided to replicate one of the ...

Traveling from Indo-Aus Christmas/New Year

Posted by maccy on 31/1/2011 at 03:35

Hey, I'm planning a trip from the UK to Australia and trying to factor in Indonesia. My only problem is that the only time I can fit Indo in runs into Christmas and New Year. I can either stay in Indo over that time and fly out to Aus once Christmas and New Year is over or I could try and Fly out either a couple of days before Christmas or a couple of days before New Year. So I guess my questions are: 1) Is it going to be major expensive to fly out over that period for anyone who has done thi ...

Day trips to Gili Air-Lombok, Kuta-Ubud?

Posted by Nicol on 5/2/2011 at 04:55

Hi Please could anyone advise if it is feasible for me to do day trips from Gili Air island to Lombok. As I am staying on Gili air for 3 weeks I thought I could do day trips to Lombok rather than having to relocate to other accomodation on Lombok? Also for my last few days I wanted to explore Ubud . Is it an option for me to stay on Kuta Beach and go to Ubud for day trips or should I base myself in Ubud for the last few days? I know its 75 min drive from Kuta beach, would this be expensi ...

Lodging Review: Flowerbud Bungalows in Balangan, Bali

Posted by cisdeluca on 9/2/2011 at 18:36

Down south in the bukit peninsula of Bali, is a quiet coastal town of Balangan Beach. With a fun intermediate level wave to surf and many local warungs along the beach, this is an area that is yet to become over developed. Just up the hill from the beach, about 30 meters, is Flowerbud Bungalows. A well manicured property with an infinity pool, Flowerbud has 14 multi-sized bungalows. They have bungalows that can accommodate groups between 2 and 6 people. Constructed with bamboo and walled in outd ...
